    Actor Eddie Cibrian was injured Tuesday night while filming on the Chicago set of "The Playboy Club."

    Cibrian, 38, the husband of country singer LeAnn Rimes, suffered a gash on his right heel while running down an alley on the show's set, located at Cinespace Studios on the West Side. He caught his heel under a 200-pound steel door, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

    Cibrian was taken to Northwestern Medical Hospital and no other details have been announced.

    NBC said Tuesday it was canceling "The Playboy Club" after the third episode because of low ratings. The network is continuing to film in Chicago until Oct. 10 and hopes to sell the series to another network, according to reports.

    On the show Cibrian plays the lead Nick Dalton, a lawyer and Playboy Club key-holder.
